Praia do Porto Santo, Porto Santo Island

Blanketed by golden sand and surrounded by shallow waters, Praia do Porto Santo represents its namesake island's premier beach. Get ready to soak up some rays, hit the surf, or simply enjoy the rugged landscape of Porto Santo. You'll find that while the beach stretches 9 km (5.6 mi), it's actually several different, distinct areas in one. If you're feeling hungry, you can grab a snack or refreshing drink from one of the many cafes and snack bars just off the water. Bathrooms and showers make it easy to rinse off without a problem after a dip. A visit to Praia do Porto Santo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Porto Santo Island trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • the island offers one of the best beaches in this part of the Atlantic Ocean, with golden sand and not many people  more »
  • Nice beach with good sand. When waves are big dont go to far out- holes and stream can be dangerous. Beds and parasols available, so lay down and enjoy the sun.  more »
